Ryan Reynolds Teases New Detective Pikachu Trailer in the Most Ryan Reynolds Way Possible

Ryan Reynolds has given his fans an inside look into what it's like becoming the main mascot of the Pokémon series.

Ryan Reynolds has announced via his Twitter that a new Detective Pikachu trailer is dropping tomorrow. His announcement came with a short video giving fans a look at what it’s like to become the iconic yellow Pokémon. As expected, the video is as Ryan Reynolds as Ryan Reynolds can be. I’ll leave that statement up to your imagination, check out the video below.

Detective Pikachu is a film based on the game and series of the same name. It’ll follow a young man (Justice Smith) who teams up with Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) following the disappearance of his father. Unlike a bunch of other Pokémon movies, this will be the first live-action adaptation for the series. Based on the first trailer, the movie actually looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. It also stars Japanese actor Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Letters from Iwo Jima, Godzilla) which is always a plus in my book.

The Detective Pikachu video game launched early last year and has you teaming up with Pikachu to solve a bunch of mysteries throughout the world of Pokémon. Because it was only a 3DS title, not many people were talking about the game as Switch has been the main talking point for Nintendo as of late. However, it did receive a really cool big amiibo that could be used in-game. The title had some similar humor to it that looks like it’s well adapted into the movie as well based on what we’ve seen so far.

Detective Pikachu will be in theaters on May 10, 2019.
